The city of Opa-locka has always been a strange, unique, other-worldly place to many a South Florida resident. The city is often associated with poverty, corruption and crime (in 2004, it had the highest crime rate in the country).

Genaro Ambrosino’s gallery, first in Coral Gables, then in North Miami, was one of the must-stop galleries on the emerging Miami art scene.

The very small, cardboard sculptures hanging on the walls of the Alejandra von Hartz Gallery don’t necessarily draw your eye immediately – you have to search them out a little when you stop in to the well-done, handsome exhibit from Ana Tiscornia titled “Other impertinences.” They are almost like 3-D architectural blueprints, scaffolding of a […]

It’s always illuminating to visit an artist working in his or her studio. There is a permanent mystery when viewing art – where did it come from, how was it birthed? Artists themselves have also enjoyed the interaction with a form of public while in the process of creation. MOCA has latched on to both […]

Bridge Red Studios/Project Space (a Knight Arts grantee) is up to its old tricks again: showing work from established artists that too often have fallen off the contemporary art map in Miami. In this case, it’s the work of Robert Flynn, who shockingly died at the early age of 39 from a heart attack several years […]

September has arrived with a tropical-storm force of art openings. Really, can everybody be opening so many shows at the same time? It is pretty exciting, though.
